George C. 20lb. Permit The weather today was perfect. The wind was calm and never picked up. I picked George up at the Inlet at 7:30 a.m. We stopped at a shoreline and I netted up a few crabs. After that we went to get croakers. It was a little slower than yesterday. On the way to go fish we noticed a few schools of Greenies. The Bonita are everywhere feeding on glass minnows.

After we arrived at the spot. It didn’t take long for George to spot a few Permit. With a few good casts with a crab, he hooked up a 20 lb. Permit. We landed it and snapped a few good pics. After that I broke one off. I am having some serious bad luck when it comes to Permit. I pulled a hook on one as well. We both caught a couple of monster Jack’s. The Snook were biting but we couldn’t land one. The Snook were hanging on the bottom and kept breaking us on the structure. Man we lost some big fish! If it wasn’t one thing it was another. George also caught a good size Sheepshead and a small Barracuda. We had a lot of action all day. With it getting later in the afternoon the storms were building from the south and it was time to get. Thanks again George that was a lot of fun. I will keep my eye out for the Tarpon.
